In Emanuel Leutze’s mural, a group of pioneers and their train of covered wagons are pictured at the continental divide, looking towards the sunset and the Pacific Ocean. The border depicts vignettes of exploration and frontier mythology. Beneath the central composition is a panoramic view of their destination “Golden Gate,” in San Francisco Bay.

Instagramming the Capitol

Instagrammers in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol

On a rainy December Saturday a group of Instagrammers joined us at the U.S. Capitol to tour the building and chat with an Architect of the Capitol photographer during our first ever Instameet. Despite the weather it was a great event and we look forward to hosting more in the future!

Thanks to all who joined us and offered a unique perspective on the art and architecture of the U.S. Capitol through their photography. See all of their images on instagram at #capinstameet. Follow the AOC on Instagram at http://instagram.com/uscapitol.
